View Full Version : Did Scythians influence the Norse?

"Scandinavaia" may be Ger. skandieren "to scan", from IE skua "to cover" as in ON "skye" clouds, "skua" roaming sea-bird, and E. skin, to skin (flay a skin) and thus "skewer" a skin, Saxon <"seaxe" skinning-knife,sword.

This appears to be in Skythe of Scythians of Ukraine, who possibly reached Buskipin in Poland. Norse church-doorposts have Scythian-style griffins carvings.

Scandinavian Swedish rulers were invited to rule Kiev, as "rivers.rowers.russ." on the ancestral Dneiper, Don and Dniester rivers of Scythians.

Do you think that Scythians reached the Baltic?

The Scythians were earlier than the present inhabitants of the Germanic inhabitants of Scandinavia, were they not? But there is no denying the relationship. The art alone, not even looking at linguistics or physical anthropology, tend to support a connection.

Scythians from Persia possibly attacked Biskupin in Poland 6th centBC. The tangled chains of contact (Celts.Anglo-Saxons. French Normans. Norse Christian kings) may have persisted for 1500 years. At the same time, Scythian-Indian Brahmins were developing a culture which became Angkor Wat temple Cambodia, to represent mythic mount Meru north of Afghanistan, symbol of world governance by Brahma.
Polish and Ger. "bram" as "ship top-gallant mast" (for admirals' and state flags) is OSwed. "bram" meaning "state.pomp" and OE "breme" as "high.famous.noble". IE brih "expand. praise.fructify" is Brahma. "Gallant"(mast) and Swed.p"als br"am both mean "braiding", like Persian brahmin flags with tassels and decorations.
Persian "braminiya" means "reverently". As Angkor Wat of Scythian-Greek Brahmins is designed in cruciform shape, did Scythians produce this shape in Gothic cathedrals with the tower steeple? The Norman (Celto-Scythian?) towers in Somerset UK have a spire with 4 side-peaks on each corner, in the shape of Angkor. etc etc
